THE WELL-TRAVELLED BOARD MEMBER

693 board 001a

We realised when updating this sample board that, fresh from trips to New York, Hong Kong and several to Amsterdam, it has become a Silver BA Executive member in its own right. Probably quite fitting given the nice silvery Texalium panel.

We will shortly update its profile on the BA website so it gets allocated the window seat it prefers, not to mention the low-sodium meal.

It’s a reminder that there’s still no substitute for a board of actual finishes for clients to look at and feel and touch, even though the larger marble samples are sometimes a pain in the neck. Literally.

They usually make it past airport security, there being no recent instances of flight crew having been disabled with a piece of White Stained Walnut. Which is more than can be said for Mr Fraser’s favourite tape measure which was confiscated in MuscatĀ airport lest he measure someone up in a threatening manner. Or, even more mysteriously, my roll of Bannenberg & Rowell tape which was seized at Eindhoven airport in case I taped up a pilot with branded material.
